Bucks guard Jrue Holiday, who has missed the past 10 games while in the league’s health and safety protocols, will likely play Sunday against the Clippers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Holiday was able to practice Saturday and has made progress with his conditioning this week, Wojnarowski adds.
Milwaukee was just 5-5 without Holiday, who was acquired from the Pelicans in a four-team trade during the offseason. The Bucks have slipped into third place in the Eastern Conference and have seen their scoring, point differential and assists per game all decline with Holiday sidelined.
The 30-year-old, who has a $26.765 million player option for next season, was having a productive season before being forced off the court. Through 23 games, he was averaging 16.4 points, 5.4 assists and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 50% from the floor and 38.7% on three-pointers.
